Short Breaks And Midwest Weekend Getaways From Chicago

Living in the center of the US, Chicago area families have some driving to do for weekends away at fun museums, waterparks, and great cities.

The Midwest is both the Land of Lincoln and the land of Obama, two fathers who have been celebrated for enjoying their families and family vacations. (At least we can speak for the latter.) So it stands to reason that other families in the Chicago metropolitan area would welcome a chance to escape the stress of the city and enjoy family time on a short break holiday.

Short Breaks And Weekend Getaways From San Francisco

We love vacationing in San Francisco and its environs, but sometimes even families lucky enough to live there have to get away for a weekend.

California is such a large and varied state that families planning a weekend from San Francisco, traveling by car, usually stay within state lines. With so many cultural institutions, outdoor adventures, snowsports resorts, mountain lakes and national parks nearby, it's no wonder that northern California families can take short breaks so close to home.

Boston Strong with the Ryan Family

When you have a young child and travel, your thoughts focus on how to keep them busy by educating and engaging them in activities that please the mind and body and help them to grow. The parents make the plans, but more input comes as children grow.

But what about adult children in their twenties? There is a shift. It’s more coordinating time off, picking a place to interest them, deciding whether friends will also come. I have learned to do more following than leading in the past few years.
